I turn the LED on first in the morning when I get up. It is not very bright, then later in the morning the fluorescent light, which is on a timer, comes on. The LED has a moonlight setting too that I turn on in the evening for a while when the others are off. So I sort of have a stage from no light to low, to bright and back down. The Fluorescent mostly lights the front of the tank so I thought the plants in the back would benefit from the LED which is pretty small, but I could turn the LED off after the fluorescent comes on. I have some floating plants but they are not covering the entire aquarium surface yet. Maybe after they proliferate more it will be better for the fish.
